This recap of the Apple TV+ show Season 3, Episode 6, “The Lowlands,” contains spoilers.

See season 3 was announced as the final chapter in this sci-fi saga, which allows writers to freely kill whoever they please and cause the devastation of their choosing. The final seasons are bittersweet in that sense, unburdened by the pressures of longevity and yet tasked with providing proper closure for fans. See seems to be setting up an almighty ending to that and the showrunners seem more than happy to kill whoever they want, but the jury is still out on whether this show will end in good shape.

Baba and his troops rush to Pennsa to warn Maghra of the coming war. Harlan is skeptical of their plan, however, believing that time is very much against them. If they reach the city before Tormada, they still won’t have enough time to prepare an army and other defenses. He instead suggests a perilous shortcut, which Baba reluctantly accepts. This shortcut takes them through the lowlands where a cannibalistic tribe stalks them as prey.

In a car graveyard, Baba’s team is attacked by these savages. Haniwa and Harlan are captured after a jaw-dropping fight streak. The primeval beasts are hard to track, and Baba sees no choice but to use Wren as bait to lure the cannibals out of the shadows. Baba follows one of the tribesmen back to their base, where Harlan and Haniwa are tied up, awaiting a horrible end. Haniwa sees Guntar’s severed head and realizes they are next. She explains to Harlan how to escape his chains. Once Harlan is free, they make their thrilling escape.

The end

The gang is all together, but Harlan has been seriously injured and is bleeding on the ground. With his usual witty sarcasm, he told Haniwa to exaggerate his heroic deeds at home, then pleaded with Baba to prevent the enemy from taking his city. It’s unknown if Harlan dies on the spot or if the group leaves him for dead, but this subplot ends here for today.
